I had my one-year checkup with my hip doctor a few weeks ago. I really didn’t have anything to complain about. In fact, he commented that oftentimes, his patients say that they don’t even notice their hips after a year or so. Guess I can join that group of happy hip people. But I do notice it quite often…not my hips, just the lack of pain as I do something like travel. The littlest things like hoisting my carry-on bag into the upper storage compartment or walking across the airport to catch a flight. It’s the little things in life that really had become the big things.
Anyway, I thought I’d put in one post, all of the posts I’d written about my hip dysplasia, surgeries and subsequent recoveries. I’d meant to do this a while back. I know there are or will be several people who will be shocked as I was to find out or have known forever about her hip dysplasia and are/were waiting for the right time to do a THR or two. So, my stories are in the following posts. I hope this helps educate and assure anyone that indeed, it’s all going to be just fine.
